The winery’s 14,000 square feet of caves were designed and built by hand by Friedrich Gruber of Gutenstein Austria. The caves are finished with handmade Austrian brick recovered from sites in and around Vienna and showcases select works from the Halls’ art collection. Deep inside the caves resides a dazzling reception area for private tastings and entertaining. The room’s spectacular chandelier, designed by Donald Lipski and Jonquil LeMaster, is dressed in hundreds of Swarovski crystals. « less

Located just off of Rutherford Hill Road it was a tiny bit hard to find (try not to miss the turn off towards the bottom of the hill). On top of the hill Hall has a beautiful view of half the valley. It appeared to be to be broken into two structures, a reception hall/building that has huge windows all... More

My husband and I visited Hall Rutherford and loved everything about it. The winery was beautiful. Beautiful views, beautiful art, a GORGEOUS tasting room. We loved our guide Mark. He was so knowledgeable and FUN. He was so enthusiastic and very different from some of the other guides we have encountered who just rattled off information about the wines. I... More

You must make an appointment for a tour and tasting, but the process is VERY easy and definitely worth it!! The views from the winery are breath taking. We were greeted by Craig, our tour guide, who was very friendly and enthusiastic about sharing the Hall story and wine making making process with the group. The art collection is amazing... More

The previous reviews do a good job summarizing the Hall Rutherford experience. Our guide, Mark, was very knowledgeable. Things started with a glass of sauvignon blanc on the deck with stunning views of the valley, proceeded outside to a row of vines, then into the cave. The grapes are turning, apparently a couple of weeks early, so it was interesting... More

We were looking forward to the Artisan Cave and Winery Tour at Hall Rutherford and we were fortunate to be guests of friends who were Hall wine club members. Otherwise, the cost for this winery tour by appointment only is $60. Driving up the long private road, you reach the gates of Hall winery. You call in from the phone... More

We immensely enjoyed both the tour and grounds of Hall-Rutherford. They are on the top of the mountain, so the scenery is gorgeous. The tour guide, Rob, was very knowledgable. The artwork alone is worth making the trip! The tree chandelier is stunningly beautiful and well worth seeing. The wines were very nice, and we enjoyed the cheese tray--very yummy!

This was our first winery tour on our visit to Napa/Sonoma and I must say, it is EXQUISITE! Rob was our guide and was so fun and knowledgable. We were greeted with glasses of wine and instantly blown away by the beautiful grounds, buildings, and art. Everything around you is ART! I will forever remember our visit here and will... More

If you enjoy art with your wine you must visit this winery. The Halls have spared no expense in creating magnificent caves embellished with artful treasures. The tour was informative and relaxing and the wine is wonderful.

We made reservations a week ahead for the tour and tasting. Part of the GEMS program, so that was an extra perk. Not at all hard to find, just follow the hill up to the top. Dial in to get entrance gate open. Arrive early so that you can enjoy the art and the views. Soon enough a glass of... More

Hall, Rutherford (NOT to be confused with sister operation in St. Helena) is well worth the cost and effort to get to. The views from the reception area are fantastic...get there a little before your tour time for some pictures. Our guide was very informative about the winery and wines. Won't spoil the experience with too many details, but the... More
